Press Release

Popular Wizard-themed Pop-up Opens in Dublin

The Cauldron Magical Experience has announced an Irish pop-up, which opens in July

June 2019 (DUBLIN)- The Cauldron has announced an Irish expansion of its fantasy-themed cocktail-making experience, following two successful pop-ups in London and New York City that have welcomed over 100,000 aspiring witches and wizards.  The Magical Experience opens in July in The Liquor Rooms. Tickets are on sale now at www.thecauldron.io/dublin.

The Cauldron at The Liquor Rooms is a one hour and forty-five minute ticketed class that centers on the idea of using science and technology to bring concepts from fantasy novels and magical lore to life.  Upon arrival, guests receive a robe and working magic wand, which is imbibed with technology and used to pour helpings of The Cauldron’s collaboration craft beer, cocktail, or mocktail.

Guests use the equipment at their wand-interactive workstation, which include a cauldron, mixing utensils, and fresh and bottled potion-making ingredients to brew two drinkable potions that change colour, bubble, and smoke. Classes include 3 drinks, all materials and supplies, and start at just €29.99 per ticket.  Individual, group, and corporate bookings are available. Over 18s only.

During their time at The Cauldron, guests can use their magic wand to pour their own pint of Wicked Wolf, a limited edition collaboration beer brewed for The Cauldron Dublin by Wicklow Wolf in Bray.  The hoppy and floral IPA is brewed with ingredients used in real magical history-- Jasmine and Green Tea-- and those specific to Ireland-- Malted Irish Barley and Wicklow Water. Patrons who buy tickets in the first 24 hours of their release will be placed in a drawing for a private brewery tour and tasting of Wicked Wolf and Wicklow Wolf’s current product line.

The Cauldron began as a Crowdfunding project in 2017 whilst co-founder Matthew Cortland, a George Mitchell Scholar and former reading teacher, was living in Dublin, working at a tech startup, and finishing his master’s degree in Creative Digital Media at the Dublin Institute of Technology.  Cortland, a former moderator of the Dublin Startup Digest, moved to London to set up the business and is now returning to Ireland to bring the product home. “This concept has such strong roots in Irish Design and individuals in Dublin-- from our illustrator to our wand maker to our key advisors.  We even shot our first video in The Gravediggers in Glasnevin, a location that was a major source of inspiration for the interior design vision for The Cauldron. Without the assistance and contribution from these people, I’m not sure that we would have ever gotten to this point,” said Cortland. “I’m incredibly grateful,” he added.

Co-founder David Duckworth, a molecular cocktail and experience designer, remarked on the strong fit between The Cauldron’s concept and Irish folklore.  “Celtic folklore and mythology ties into the fantastical experience we are bringing to Dublin. The idea that magic is real and just inaccessible to ordinary people or that the veil to the other realm is just beyond reach is a concept that resonates with those who love fantasy and mythology. Our goal is to use science, the magic of our world, to make that dream real.”  

The Cauldron Dublin is working with the Press Up Group to run a 3-month pop-up in The Liquor Rooms, a well-known underground speakeasy on the quays.

Last week, The Cauldron announced its pop-up in Edinburgh, Scotland.  With the Irish expansion of the concept, The Cauldron has doubled the number of cities where it operates.

Visitors to The Cauldron’s classes are encouraged to bring a copy of their favorite childhood book, which will be donated to a reading classroom in need in Dublin.  Find The Cauldron on social media @thecauldronpub.

Popular Wizard-themed Pop-up Expands to Edinburgh

The Cauldron Magical Experience has announced a Scottish pop-up, which opens in June

June 2019 (EDINBURGH)- The Cauldron has announced a Scottish expansion of its fantasy-themed cocktail-making experience, following two successful pop-ups in London and New York City that have welcomed over 100,000 aspiring witches and wizards.  The Magical Experience opens from June 28th on Frederick Street in New Town. Tickets are on sale now at www.thecauldron.io/edinburgh.

The Cauldron Edinburgh is a one hour and forty-five minute ticketed class that centers on the idea of using science and technology to bring concepts from fantasy novels and magical lore to life.  Upon arrival, guests receive a robe and working magic wand, which is imbibed with technology and used to pour helpings of The Cauldron’s collaboration craft beer, cocktail, or mocktail.

Guests use the equipment at their wand-interactive workstation, which include a cauldron, mixing utensils, and fresh and bottled potion-making ingredients to brew two drinkable potions that change colour, bubble, and smoke. Classes include 3 drinks, all materials and supplies, and start at just £29.99 per ticket.  Individual, group, and corporate bookings are available. Over 18s only.

During their time at The Cauldron, guests can use their magic wand to pour their own pint of ‘3 Sisters Pale Ale’, a limited edition collaboration beer brewed for The Cauldron Edinburgh by Innis & Gunn, one of Scotland’s leading craft brewers.  The beer is infused with rosemary, honey and thistle— ingredients used in real magical history, and is a re-imagined old Scot’s brewing recipe. Patrons who buy tickets in the first 24 hours of their release will be placed in a prize draw for a private brewery tour in Glasgow and tasting of ‘3 Sisters Pale Ale’ and Innis & Gunn’s innovative beer range.  

This is the first collaboration beer that Innis & Gunn have produced in the UK.  “We take our name, The Cauldron, from the Weird Sisters in The Scottish Play, and so are excited to produce a beer with a creative brand like Innis & Gunn that draws inspiration from that same literary reference,” said co-founder David Duckworth.

The Cauldron has also formed a collaboration with Hydra, the oldest grow shop in Edinburgh, which is helping to install and maintain an indoor hydroponics grow room at The Cauldron Edinburgh.  The venue will grow the herbs and botanicals-- strawberry, rosemary, mint, basil-- used in the Experience, and to give its patrons a look into fun and interesting science that many people have never seen up close.  “We want to encourage hands-on interaction with science and technology for adult learners,” said Cortland. “Science is just the magic of our world,” added Duckworth.

The Cauldron began as a Crowdfunding project in 2017 and is the brainchild of Matthew Cortland, a technologist and former reading teacher, and David Duckworth, a molecular mixologist and cocktail experience designer.  “The idea that magic is real and just inaccessible to ordinary people is a concept that resonates with a generation of fantasy fans. Our goal is to use science, the magic of our world, to make that dream real,” said Cortland.  

The Cauldron Edinburgh is running as a 5-month pop-up for now, with plans to test the market response to the concept. The Cauldron plans to take part in the Fringe Festival, and interested comedians, magicians, and performers should get into contact.  

Food is also available for purchase within The Cauldron to enjoy during the Experience.

Visitors to The Cauldron’s classes are encouraged to bring a copy of their favorite childhood book, which will be donated to a reading classroom in need in Scotland.  Find The Cauldron on social media @thecauldronpub.

Fantasy-inspired molecular cocktail bar & gastropub opens in Manhattan

The Cauldron opens its American Flagship on New York City’s most historic street, delighting aspiring witches and wizards in America

21 February 2019 (NYC)- The Cauldron Magical Pub & Experience has announced its New York City expansion and grand opening of its permanent flagship location on Stone Street in the Financial District of New York City.  The two-story pub on Manhattan’s most historic street will house both a walk-in molecular cocktail bar and gastropub and a ticketed potion-making cocktail experience.  Reservations and tickets can be made at www.thecauldron.io/nyc.

 The ground floor cocktail bar-- The Apothecary-- serves a range of signature molecular cocktails that showcase science-- the magic of our world.  The cocktails have been designed by The Cauldron co-founder David Duckworth and team to excite, delight, and strike at the heart of the fantasy fandom in New York City. 

 “Our potion menu is the product of a team of expert mixologists and fantasy geeks coming together to create a cocktail program that speaks to lovers of fantasy, science, and craft cocktails. We are incredibly excited to open our doors and launch a product that New York hasn’t yet seen,” remarked co-founder David Duckworth.

 Notable creations include the Bandersnatch Martini-- a choose-your-own martini with a spherified garnish of popping boba caviar, The Wizard of Menlo Park-- an Edison-inspired ginger cocktail that shoots plumes of smoke into the air, Ode to Mullica-- a bourbon and maple cocktail served in a smoking bell jar, The Blob-- an aloe and tequila cocktail with an expanding head, and Death of a Star-- a blood orange and scotch cocktail served in a clarified sphere of ice that the customer destroys.  All drinks are made to be interactive and feature different effects-- fire, ice, smoke, spherification, expansion, color change, clarification, and even love.  The Cauldron’s love potion, Damiana’s Charm, uses Damiana-- a natural aphrodisiac as a sprinkled raspberry garnish.  The concept’s British roots are showcased in The Cauldron’s World Famous Cup of Tea-- Earl Grey, orange marmalade, and gin.

 Upon arrival to The Cauldron, guests may open up a tab on their working magic wand. With the assistance of the wand, guests are able to pour a range of craft beers and cocktails from the Cauldron’s Tree of Life, a 16-foot Oak tree growing out of its central bar.  All wands are handmade in Ireland and contain The Cauldron's proprietary technology, which is used throughout the pub to bring the enchanted realm to life by controlling aspects of the environment.

 The Cauldron also serves traditional British comfort food with a fantasy twist.  Its food program was developed by Chef Behzad of Moosh.  The Sunday Roast features family-style dining with heapings of seasonal side dishes-- peas, carrots, parsnips, gravy, cauliflower cheese, and Yorkshire Pudding, The Ox-tail Soup is served in a mini cauldron, the Rosemary Chips are hand-cut and served with a homemade, smoked wood aioli, and Elven Bread-- warm, freshly baked bread wrapped in banana leaves-- is served with a honey-yogurt dip.  For dessert, enjoy an Eton Mess-- a hodgepodge of cream, strawberries and meringue that the guest breaks to “make a mess,” Treacle Pudding, or Turkish Delight.

 “It’s wild to think that this project began just over a year ago as a Kickstarter and is now open in both London and New York.  The support from our customers and backers has defined this project and enabled us get to this point. Thank you for continuing to believe in our vision and product,” said co-founder Matthew Cortland.

 Private hires are available for The Cauldron, where guests receive bags of The Cauldron’s custom-designed wizard money, which is used to purchase food and drinks toward the minimum spend; 5 Freckles to a Spryte and 10 Sprytes to a Dragon.

 The Cauldron also opens its new venue in London on March 1, 2019.

 Visitors to The Cauldron are encouraged to bring a copy of their favorite childhood book, which will be donated to a reading classroom in need in New York City.
